Author Interview: Samantha Bryant October 2, 2017
Thanks for hosting me for the interview!
Hello and welcome to another Author Interview by Book Squirrel. Today we’re chatting with Samantha Bryant, author of the Menopausal Superheroes series.
Hi, Samantha. It’s lovely to have you here.
Hi, Book Squirrel. I’ve never chatted with a squirrel before, so I’m excited.
I’m a very exciting squirrel.
I bet you are.
So tell us, what inspired you to write?
I’ve written nearly as long as I can remember. It probably started with a love of reading, but it was my first grade teacher who put me on the path to becoming an author. As a handwriting exercise, Mrs. Alsdorf had us first graders copy out classic poems in our nicest hand, illustrating them in the margins, and collecting them in a special folder made out of wallpaper scraps.
That was my first encounter with many classic poets: Robert Frost, William Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson, etc. I fell in love with…

Friend or Foe: A Menopausal Superhero Short Story Collection August 10, 2017
Friend Or Foe by Samantha Bryant is a collection of 4 short stories that bridges the gaps in the menopausal superhero novel series. In comics they sometimes have story arcs that last several issues but sometimes they will have a one shot between stories. This book is all about giving you little details that you didn’t get in the novels.
The first story set before book 1 is “Intervention” and it goes back in time to when Patricia and Cindy Lu were friends. You could say it’s an orgin story for Cindy as we see what made her decide to be a mad scientist. In this one you feel sympathy for her but in the future you see her as caring more about science and progress than people. The theme here could be that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. You also see Patricia already acting like…

The Al Capone theory of sexual harassment July 19, 2017
Fascinating read . . .and reads true from my own experience, too.
We’re thrilled with the recenttrendtowards sexual harassment in the tech industry having actual consequences – for the perpetrator, not the target, for a change. We decided it was time to write a post explaining what we’ve been calling “the Al Capone Theory of Sexual Harassment.” (We can’t remember which of us came up with the name, Leigh or Valerie, so we’re taking joint credit for it.) We developed the Al Capone Theory over several years of researching and recording racism and sexism in computer security, open source software, venture capital, and other parts of the tech industry. To explain, we’ll need a brief historical detour – stick with us.
As you may already know, Al Capone was a famous Prohibition-era bootlegger who, among other things, ordered murders…

Going Through The Change: (Menopausal Superheroes #1) July 10, 2017
Just in time to celebrate the release of book 3 on July 11, a thoughtful review of book 1. Thanks!
As women enter menopause their bodies go through a lot of changes. They have to deal with such things as hot flashes, itchy skin, mood swings and hormonal imbalances. For the women in Going Through The Change: (Menopausal Superheroes #1) by Samantha Bryant these changes lead to superhuman strength. It all started with four women taking supplements made by Dr. Cindy Liu for their menopause symptoms.
Now we have Linda who has become a man, Helen who can throw fire, Jessica who now flies and Patricia who is bullet proof. None of the women understand why these changes happened and now they’re trying to find Dr. Cindy Lu to get some answers. What they don’t know is Cindy Liu is going through some changes herself and the answers they seek will change their lives forever.
As soon as I saw the cover for this book I thought of it as…
